Ruptured bulkhead caused gas development
Yellow smoke started billowing from the "Dae Won", which was berthed at Kaohsiung, in the early morning of June 5, 2019. The gas was a chemical reaction of mixing nitric acid with ballast water. The tanker which had a cargo of nitric acid, suffered a ruptured bulkhead between the cargo and ballast tanks which lead to an acid and water mix. The emitted gas concentration didn’t pollute air to a threatening level. The tanker was ordered to leave port and sailed at 2 a.m., headed to Hongkong, ETA June 6.
